PSALM 35. First Part. C.M.
Imprecations mixed with charity.

  1 NOW plead my cause, Almighty God,
   With all the sons of strife;
And fight against the men of blood,
   Who fight against my life.
  2 Draw out the spear, and stop their way;
   Lift thine avenging rod;
But, to my soul in mercy say,
   "I am thy Saviour God."
  3 They plant their snares to catch my feet,
   And nets of mischief spread:
Plunge the destroyers in the pit,
   That their own hands have made.
  4 Let fogs and darkness hide their way;
   And slipp'ry be their ground:
Thy wrath shall make their lives a prey,
   And all their rage confound.
  5 They fly, like chaff before the wind,
   Before thine angry breath:
The angel of the Lord behind
   Pursues them down to death.
  6 They love the road, that leads to hell:
   Then must the rebels die,
Whose malice is implacable
   Against the Lord on high.
  7 But if thou hast a chosen few
   Amongst that impious race;
Divide them from the bloody crew
   By thy surprising grace.
  8 Then will I raise my tuneful voice
   To make thy wonders known;
In their salvation I'll rejoice,
   And bless thee for my own.

PSALM 35. Second Part. C.M.
The love of Christ typified in David.

  1 BEHOLD the love, the gen'rous love
   That holy David shows!
Mark how his tender bowels move
   For his afflicted foes!
  2 When they are sick, his soul complains,
   And seems to feel the smart;
The spirit of the gospel reigns,
   And melts his pious heart.
  3 How did his flowing tears condole
   As for a brother dead!
And fasting mortified his soul,
   While for their life he pray'd.
  4 They groan'd and curs'd him on their bed;
   Yet still he pleads and mourns:
And double blessings on his head
   The righteous God returns.
  5 O glorious type of heav'nly grace!
   Thus Christ the Lord appears;
While sinners curse, the Saviour prays,
   And pities them with tears.
  6 He, the true David, Israel's king,
   Blest and belov'd of God,
To save us rebels dead in sin,
   Paid his own dearest blood.

PSALM 36. First Part. S.M.
Atheism exposed.

  1 WHEN man grows bold in sin,
   My heart within me cries,
"He hath no faith of God within,
   "Nor fear before his eyes."
  2 He walks awhile conceal'd
   In a self-flatt'ring dream;
